Burlington, Ontario – Global Warriors Fighting Championship is very proud to announce that a bout between two of Canada’s best lightweights, Alex Ricci (8-3) & Kyle Prepolec (8-1), is now official for May 30th at Burlington’s Central Arena. Long heralded as two of the top prospects in the lightweight division across Canada, the winner of this fight will no doubt be knocking on the door of the biggest promotions in the world. This fight features a real clash of styles as Alex Ricci brings his picture perfect Muay-Thai skills to battle against the grinding power game of Kyle Prepolec.

A well known exponent of pure Muay-Thai striking, Alex Ricci has been a favourite of fans, gyms, media and promotions since his MMA debut in December of 2010. A champion in the sport of Muay-Thai kickboxing, Ricci’s switch to the MMA world has gone exceptionally well, having opened up his career with 5 straight wins all by form of knockout, Ricci decided to jump into the deep end of the pool, garnering wins over Kevin Morin (8-6), Luis Felix (13-8) and his most recent win over E.J. Brooks (8-3). Even in his three career losses to Jesse Ronson (15-5), Ryan Healy (20-13-1) & Darrell Horcher (11-1), Ricci has only improved his stock, pushing each of those three to razor thin decisions. Against Kyle Prepolec on May 30th, Ricci looks to make a statement, that it is his time to be the next Ontario fighter to make the jump to the sport’s biggest stage and is as motivated as he has ever been in his career.

Kyle Prepolec may have been one of Canada’s best kept MMA secrets until a come back victory over Adam Assenza (4-3) at PFC 1 turned heads around the sport. Following that up with consecutive PFC victories over Kevin Morin (8-6) & Damien Hill (11-5), Prepolec has shown that his breakout is for real. In Alex Ricci however, Prepolec faces undoubtedly his toughest test in the sport. Bringing a grinding style that wears opponents down, Prepolec will have to slow down and control the cage. Also possessing incredibly recovery skills in the cage, Prepolec will not quit in any fight and if Ricci plans to take a win will have to battle through an opponent who never gives up.

This fight could be a main event anywhere in Ontario and Global Warriors is proud to present it as part of the spectacular Global Warriors 2: Coming Home card.
